The ABLE Scarf: designed by Erin Loechner.

blogABLE Collaborations the women

We're entering into a season of some collaborative products, and we couldn't be more excited. This first one is a scarf designed by our dear sweet friend Erin Loechner.  Erin traveled to Ethiopia with us on the #blogABLE trip last fall, which inspired her and gave her a vision for designing this product...

I met many women in Ethiopia—women of great strength and faith and ability. Women who were ABLE to rise above their circumstances and are learning to settle in the space that exists between gratitude and growth. And this scarf is their statement; their declaration. A tangible celebration of my Ethiopian friends unraveling the story of their lives. Tigist, who is ABLE to dream of her future again. Mehari, who is ABLE to send her children to school. Alem, who is ABLE to raise her family well. Teshome, who is ABLE to support her little sisters. Their statements are much like our own, scrawled with empowerment and intention, continually writing and rewriting themselves onto a larger page. Tearing and patching, ripping and repairing, tangling and unraveling. And these very statements, I believe, are what weave us together— intricately, delicately, permanently. And so, this scarf is a declaration for all of us. For those who feel more than ABLE or less than ABLE or maybe, just-might-be, perhaps ABLE enough. For those who have fully realized their ABLE and those who haven’t yet scratched the surface of their ABLE. For those who embrace their unabashed ABLE or those who are nervously preparing to leap into their uncharted ABLE. It’s for those of you like me— who might need a shift, an ever-so-slight unraveling of your story. Who might need a bit of mending from have-to or don’t-want- to or am-scared-to into one beautifully, achingly, undeniably inspiring perspective: ready, willing. ABLE. - erin loechner
